Since I haven't seen this posted yet, I thought I'd share a "bomb" announced
at the WinHelp 96 conference earlier this week. According to a speaker at
one of the sessions, Microsoft has decided to move from RTF to HTML as the
"base coding" for help files. This is planned to take place in mid-1997.

I wasn't in the session where this was announced and I don't know exactly
who the source was, but it was the talk of the conference. If any of you
were there and have more details, please send them to me personally. I plan
to subscribe to the winhelp list next week so I can find out more from those

Oh well, here's a new skill I need to add to my resume! And perhaps this is
the justification to move responsibility for our company's web page from
marketing to pubs (something I've wanted to see happen for a long time)!
